What is Shito-Ryu Kofukan?
Shito-ryu Karate was founded by Master Kenwa Mabuni.
In Japan, Shotokan-ryu, Wado-ryu, Goju-ryu and Shito-ryu are the four main styles. Shito-ryu is the style which preserves most of the original Shuri techniques, compared with other styles such as Shotokan and Wado. It also preserves original Naha techniques, as does Goju-ryu, although each style emphasises different points. Technically, Shuri-te and Tomari-te have rather fast and straight movements, while Naha-te has circular and supple movements.
